Hey guys! It’s Amy! I can’t believe it’s been OVER A WEEK since I last posted. And that wasn’t even from that day! I keep meaning to post, but somehow I never get around to it. Well, right now I’m doing absolutely nothing, so I have no excuse! Hopefully that title intrigued you! In the past two weeks (muffled sob) I have read four books! And of course you guys know that Christmas is in FOUR DAYS!!!!! Are you seeing where this is going? That’s right, in the next four days, there will be four posts, one for each book! It’s…
Okay, I have to confess something first. I love Nikki’s ideas (you all know that) and of course I fully support them! One of her latest and greatest is Recently Finished Friday. Well, you guys also know that we both (Nikki especially) have a tendency to not… Be on time for memes. By days or weeks. So… Unfortunately this has caused me to bend over backward trying to do Recently Finished Friday in pretty much every post. And we can all admit here that only memes is NO FUN and therefore, I need to figure this out! Basically, I’m going to try to be on time for Recently Finished Friday every week (AKA posting it on Friday) and loosen up for the rest of my posts. RFF is still going to be on the brain, but hopefully I can ignore those rules and just be CASUAL. (As if!) Alright, let’s move on to the post. I spent a REALLY long time on that edit.
Alexis is a loner and rebel; as different from the popular kids as you can possibly get. Life is normal- except for Kasey, her doll-crazy little sister. When Kasey’s eyes begin turning colors and she gets violent, Alexis’s nemesis, Megan, offers help. Everything is all wrong. Doors are closing and opening, and on top of it all, she may be developing a crush on the very person she made popular. Alexis must learn what’s happening- before it’s too late!
I read anything within the YA Fiction genre, i.e. Fantasy, Realistic, Sci-Fi…. (Sorry, I promise this is related!) Usually, though, I read one genre at a time. I don’t usually skip all around all the time. That’s exhausting! Lately, I’ve been on a paranormal kick, and this week is just going to prove it! I’m interested in all the creepy things! (And I may have also feared for my life a few times during the past two weeks.) ANYWAY, if you guys have any suggestions for me, I’d love to hear it! Bring on the creepiness! (Oh boy)
I loved this book! It was interesting to see Alexis struggle with the impossibility of ghosts versus what was inevitably happening. We also got to learn a little about what was going on inside Kasey’s head. Because of the doll obsession, she really had no friends, so the ghost really became her life. She was promised that her family wouldn’t be harmed, and we see her realize she has been lied to when the violence gets out of hand. And that ending though! The story was really tied together well. If the author hadn’t wanted to write another book, this could have been a stand-a-lone. I’m glad there is, though! I felt like even though the plot was complicated and there were some really small yet important details, there wasn’t just extra fluff. It all worked together to make an awesome story! I definitely recommend this! Honestly, it wasn’t too scary. No trouble sleeping; it could work for easily upset stomachs!
I don’t think I got any quotes from this book, I’m sorry to say. I’ve been really bad about that lately. I’ll try to be better about that! And now, my dear reader (I’m just assuming it’s singular as I feel like I’m rambling), I introduce to you the wonder I like to call… The Internet! Let’s look at a couple quotes, courtesy of Google…
And finally everybody, I have to apologize for my absence overall. I took a hammer to the Bloglovin’ unread pile today and didn’t even make a dent! It started out over 200. I didn’t even try with the email yet. Basically, if you want get ahold of us, I highly recommend that for the time being you comment instead of emailing… I’m working on it, I promise! I’ll get there! Someday! I love you guys! Thanks so much for everything!
Are you as excited for Christmas as I am? What do you think of my edit? Have any of you read Bad Girls Don’t Die? Planning to? Does anyone have any creepy book (young adult please) ideas for me? Was my synopsis okay? I missed you guys! Gimme hugs! Alright, toodles!
